S Club 7's Tina Barrett becomes mum for the first time


S Club 7´s Tina Barrett has welcomed a baby boy which she's given the very classical name of Roman.

The singer revealed the happy news on her Twitter page on Monday.

It's the first child for Tina, 39 , and partner Paul Cashmore.

She told MailOnline recently that she felt "very lucky" about the pregnancy going without complications due to her age.

She said: "People do say when you're late 30s, 40s that is it more difficult and you could have complications. That was always in the back of my head when we decided to try for a baby.

"Luckily we conceived naturally and it's been absolutely fine. Had we not, it would have been really tough. Things have changed so much because so many women are having babies older now.

"I think I would have looked into IVF if we had experienced difficulties."

Only days before she shared a picture of her looking swell and excitedly wrote, "Only days to go!!!"
